Three Chippewas will make the trek to Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn this coming weekend for the MHSAA XC State Finals! After fantastic performances at the regional meet last weekend, Kelly Schubert, Annie Fuller, and Jarret Deisch qualified to run at state.
Kelly S won her second straight regional title, breaking her own course record with a time of 17:36. Annie F was not far behind in 3rd, finishing just a hair behind 2nd place with a time of 18:14. Every other runner on the girls team also ran season best times, finishing in 4th place as a team, just out of reach of the top 3 (and a team spot at state), Eva - 19:55, Sophie - 20:57, Ashley - 21:39, Courtney - 21:51, and Sarah - 22:54.
The boys also had a stellar day, with all 9 boys running PR's. Jarret was 8th (16:29), making state for the second straight year, followed by Tyler Sievert in his final high school race (17:28). Also running awesome times were Jonny (17:59), Colin (18:06), Nick (18:07), Bryce (18:20), Austin M (18:37), Austin F (18:50), and Zach (20:00).
Great job team - you've had fantastic seasons! Good luck this weekend at state Kelly, Annie, and Jarret!
